April 14, 2008 - Day 67 (or 68)
>> Sheila is Head of Household - Sharon & Natalie are nominated <<
Love is in the air|
Demonstrated in this case by Sheila, who made a gagging face at Sharon while Natalie told a story
Sharon laughed - silently - I guess we should be grateful for the little things.. I'm not sure if that's a foot in her boobage or what: I've been having a ton of RealPlayer happy accidents lately and things like this have become commonplace as it takes so many tries to get a decent feed anymore
I'm also not sure if Sharon's going for a subliminal sisterhood message by duplicating Sheila's bikini.. in spite of fingers down throats and the like, Sheila keeps reaffirming to Natalie that the guys will vote to keep her, and Sharon's still playing along
You'll note on the sidebar that "Big Brother 10" is officially a go, and they're promising/threatening "all new game twists" - now it's our turn to gag.. in happier news, some birdies have built a nest behind one of the speakers in the back yard
Stop the presses
Sharon participated in dinner prep
I know, I know: it's hard to believe, but she crushed some garlic and then made mac & cheese, while Natalie made a cabbage dish and fixed up salmon to grill
They told Sharon to add some oil to the water so it wouldn't boil over - she did it, but didn't sound convinced it was a good idea, and she tended the macaroni like she was making candy, stirring it the whole time - with a plastic spoon.. she couldn't figure out why the water got so thick
Then she and Sheila awaited service like the royalty they think they are, trashing Natalie some more for being "judgmental", and then all joined for dinner..
..but not before Ryan approached Natalie at the grill and pitched a final two offer to her, making his collection complete, and promising her his vote this week
Showdown at last
After dinner Natalie reported Ryan's convo to Sheila & Sharon upstairs.. it didn't take long for things to get very heated, at which point Sharon made a very fast exit
If Natalie had any doubts about the wisdom of making her move, they were washed away when Sheila said "I'm not gonna give you a final decision if it goes 1-1 yet, cuz yew know whut? It's not gonna!"
Tears, raised voices, rehashing of every move by every one of them thus far all came out.. Ryan joined after awhile but stayed pretty quiet.. Alex was in the midst of it all and stayed even quieter
Meanwhile, Adam (who was feeling poorly all day with sinus problems) and Sharon were exchanging tears of their own downstairs
It all looks like a big waffle as usual: Sheila sounded convinced by Natalie's arguments but by the end of the night, she was still talking to Adam about letting Sharon stick around.. but after that, Adam & Ryan finally started to question why Sheila turned so anti-Natalie so suddenly, and realized that Natalie has been loyal to them all along
The guys have the only two votes this week unless Sheila needs to break a tie, and she desperately doesn't want to do that.. they're all lying up a storm to each other, so nothing will be 100% certain til Wednesday
They're all scared of next week's nominations, but Final 4 noms don't count for much: it's all about that final veto.. they're also all scared of the endurance portion of the final HOH comp - and both Sharon & Natalie could be strong there - but as Attw x points out, the winners of the BB6, BB7, and BB8 final endurance comps did not win their seasons
Ryan makes a pitch to Natalie; Natalie reports it to Sheila; Natalie versus Sheila in two parts; and Ryan & Adam decide to keep Natalie are posted in the forum, linked top & bottom of every page
Daily ratings - Much ado edition
Ratings are based on entertainment value
Sunday's show was another marvel of creative editing, beginning with the HOH comp that glossed over Ryan's sweating and Sheila's cracked tooth, but somehow found a camera on Natalie. From there, they once again overlooked Sheila's Penthouse days, sticking to generic 'former model', but luckily they managed to remind us 100 more times that Sheila is a mom for those who have forgotten. More Sheila WTF moments included 'I can't believe I won!' after Ryan & Natalie gave it to her, 'I've taken a lot of crap off this girl' (Natalie), and 'That was the hardest decision EVER' several times about the noms, even though she'd decided to dump Natalie long before, and easily. Adam & Sheila's massage session took place before James left, and the staged Q&A game of the other night was indeed a setup, for Sheila's dream sequence about a combo Dr. Will/Evel Dick perfect mate. They left out the one phrase they were all laughing about after the noms ('slim pickings') and I'm pretty sure they're using the same Diary footage for Sharon each show about her 'planning to do what I've always done: lay low, and keep my mouth shut'.. we're all well aware of her 'laying low' talents, but as far as keeping her mouth shut? We should be so lucky.
Paired with Sheila
He missed most of the day's events but when Ryan replayed the Sheila/Natalie fight for him and mentioned Natalie's tears, he said 'I told you - it fucks you up!' The two guys pretty much decided at the end of the night to boot Sharon, which would give Sheila a shock on live tv to equal BB8 Dustin's. Adam also commented later that it would give the photo wall 'a more uniform look - more symmetrical' and that's reason enough for me. Then he played with the cameras awhile and they played back, making for easy ups even on a mostly-AWOL day.
Paired with Matt
Good for her for seizing her moment and keeping her cool (compared to Sheila, anyway) during the fight. It worked in her favor that she admitted her double-dealing when Ryan was there and Sheila didn't, and also that she didn't fight back with the kind of accusations Sheila was making. All that might not save her, but she's got a better chance of sticking than she did 24 hours ago.. it's still a long time til the vote though.
Jen's boyfriend / Paired with Allison
He's the double-dealingest of all of them, being the only one who now has a finals arrangement with everyone. Much of that could just be insurance though, as he seems to be down with Adam more than the others. He could have stayed quiet and not told Adam about the Sheila/Natalie fight but he did, and together they finally started to ask each other why are they suddenly so intent on dumping Natalie for Sharon, when they barely knew Sharon was there until last week.
Paired with Jacob (her ex) Joshuah
When the voices raised, she couldn't get out of there fast enough, and this time it was a small enough area that both Sheila & Natalie noticed and commented about it later. She went downstairs to fondle her blue crack and cry about Jacob some more, and later Sheila told Ryan & Natalie some truths about Sharon in that she's an enabler for Jacob's screw-ups, and that she needs to 'mother' and 'fix' him. It's too bad she doesn't fill in Sharon on this stuff but hey, Sheila's got a game to play. (And anyway, we only have Sharon's version of all that junk to go by, so it's probably best we just skip it here too.) Meanwhile Sharon ventured into the kitchen to stir some melted plastic into boiling macaroni, so if they aren't feeling so hot tomorrow that could be why.
Paired with Adam
HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD
Earlier today she said about Natalie 'I can't hear those frikkin Hooters stories any longer!' Yep, of all people, she said it: un-frikkin-believable. At dinner when Adam was jokingly calling her ex/kidsitter/housesitter 'Hor-hay' she made it clear that she doesn't know how he spells his name: she said he's Finnish, not Spanish, and 'the E is silent'. (The guy's name is spelled Georg). During the fight she screamed, yelled, ranted and cried, and told Natalie that she didn't know what she'd do in a tie, which pretty much clued in Natalie that she'd be toast if that happened. The clincher though, and easy Line of the Day award winner, was Sheila's 'I don't understand where the love went' - said during the fight to Natalie, who she's been viciously trashing nonstop for days, and when Sheila was being the antagonistic one.
Revived a minute after his first eviction
Paired with Chelsia
Offline scandals kept popping up but CBS kept hyping him - damage control maybe. He pushed Chelsia til she did what she promised Daddy she wouldn't, but most of that was blocked. He cried when nobody liked him, he slept a lot, got nekkid a lot, masturbated a lot, and topped Cowboy's hat trick with his tuck. Like another James before him, he played all sides too soon and too eagerly, and it came back to bite him. Click for his adult material.
Paired with Neil Sharon
He put on costumes and breakfast shows, and did hot tub monologues, praying & sobbing aloud. He exploded viciously on Amanda & Allison, and about Sheila & Natalie (usually focused on genitalia), but he left the guys alone except James, who he c-blocked & puppy-dogged. He had lots of schemes to save himself but used them up early, and his huge drama potential fell short when we needed it most. He had the only Diary restraining order I know of: 5 feet away from Allison.
Won: $21,000 Vegas trip
Paired with James
Sometimes a spitfire who gave us good fights & fireworks but she laid around with James way too much, which was her undoing and ours. She'll be remembered for feedmasters' attempts to protect her, strip/lap dance/makeout night, having sex, raunchy stories, a colorful vocabulary, getting smashed, smashing everyone's Easter eggs, and for going out with the nasty speeches they all threaten but rarely follow through with.
Paired with Natalie
America's Playa came on strong, prepared to showmance his way through all the girls and into the money. That didn't work out but he was fun to have around and he usually kept things light amid the chaos. He brought BJs to the feeds and made Bibles fun in there. Despite the fact that he's a pig, he has some good qualities too and he kinda grows on you.
Paired with Ryan
She called it manipulation - I call it emotional blackmail with a lot of 'poor me' thrown in. One of the most delusional hamsters ever (and that's saying something), she's the poster girl for Can Dish It Out But Can't Take It. She did give us some confrontation doozies and fireworks deluxe but trust her, like one million percent, she does not care.
Revive-a-Hamster winner & loser
Paired with Amanda
He started out looking like he was on board with Matt's showmance plan and CBS picked up that angle, but then we got to know a bright, charismatic, and goofy guy who had everything going for him in there except his partner. His diplomacy was remarkable and he might have gone the distance, but he went out as another casualty of 'Til Death Do You Part'.
Paired with Alex
She began with hysterics & drama and was at the center of the biggest BB fight ever, but she went out with more of a whimper than a bang. Her moods dropped as fast as her blood sugar but to her credit, she rebounded just as fast. She & Allison had dual 911 events, but Amanda's collapse brought unexpected (and uniformed) guests into the habitat and onto the air.
Ryan's girlfriend / Paired with Parker
She & Ryan could have gone far if she hadn't opened her mouth in the first days. She made loads of enemies in a short time and took Parker down with her. She'll be remembered for super-quickie sex in the bathroom and a rash on her backside.. hmm, coincidence?
Paired with Jen
He was good watching at first til he gave up and went on strike. He bounced back a bit at the end but his doom came early when partner Jen couldn't keep her trap shut about her & Ryan. She had to go, and he was just the innocent bystander casualty. 'I'm sick of people's dumbass assinine ass comments' might be Line of the Season.
Paired with Joshuah
He left suddenly and mysteriously but wrote on his MySpace that he didn't leave for health reasons, and that he won't be back. He seems like a good guy and I wish him well.. he's probably lucky he got out when he did, unscathed.
Paired with Sharon (his ex)
Gone before the feeds kicked in: he didn't even make an appearance. All that potential for rehashing their breakup and/or a jealous rage up in smoke. To make it worse, he & Sharon didn't even get an exit interview in Julie's boudoir - how rude!

The digicam comes out Tuesday
Tuesday, April 15 at 9pm: Veto comp, veto meeting, assorted dramas
Sunday's show placed second for the second time this season (thanks to a delayed '60 Minutes' lead-in again) with a 5.7 rating and 9 share, behind 'Desperate Housewives' on ABC with 10.1/15.
Confirmed: finale is Sunday, April 27
The HOH of the Final 4 can participate in the following HOH comp.
That Final 3 HOH comp is in three parts. The first is an intense endurance. The two who don't win that compete in Part 2. The winners of Part 1 and Part 2 then compete in Part 3 for the HOH title.

First place earns $500k, second gets $50k. The others earn $750 a week, including jury sequester weeks for those that go there

This site isn't necessarily thorough: it's what I catch and/or what interests me. It also isn't necessarily about who should win, who will win, who I'd be friends with or who is cute. It's about watching hamsters: which ones are doing what and why, which are fun and which are dull. If they aren't entertaining, get rid of 'em! Thanks for encouraging my behavior.
